"Hi" - October 25, 2018

There has been an increase in spear phishing attempts among the UND community. Spear phishing is a phishing attempt targeting certain people or originating from known or trusted senders.

Lately, there has been an increase in attempts that appear to be from someone in your department or a friend asking "Are you available", saying "Hi", or something of a different subject.  All e-mails ask if the recipient is available.  If you reply, they may state that they are busy or unavailable and will likely ask you to purchase something for them.

In most cases, the sender's e-mail is not an official UND e-mail.  Please delete the email without responding.  If you are unsure, please contact the sender in a separate email or phone call.

Please contact UND Tech Support with questions.
